  • Notes 
    • JOHN S. CLARK, an enterprising agriculturist of Buffalo township, is a son of Uriah Clark, who was born and reared in Claysville, Donegal township. Washington Co., Penn.,where he received a good common-school education. In early life ho learned the trades of a machinist and cabinet maker. He was considered one of the best mechanics of the day, and could make almost any article of wood. He was married in early life to Rosanna, daughter of Jacob Ely, of Buffalo township, this county, and at that time possessed scarcely a dollar, but he continued to follow his trades, and finally, by dint of economy and industry, accumulated a good property. He reared the following children : Christina, Thomas P., Catherine and Rosanna (twins), John S., Hannah Jane, Sarah M., Ann E. and Harriet L., all of whom are living, and residing in Washington county, Penn. After his marriage Mr. Clark continued to work at his trade, until, after fifty years of toil, he bought 152 acres of land, lying in the northeastern part of Buffalo township, and passed the remaining years of his life in retirement. He was a man of strong will, and a citizen wbo merited the esteem in which he was held by the community. He was laid to rest in 1887.
      John S. Clark was born October 1, 1840, in CJaysville, Washington Co., Penn., and received his elementary education at home, where he remained until the opening of the Civil war. He enlisted August 15, 1862, under the Union flag, and was a member of Company C, Twenty-second P. V. O, Capt. G. T. Work, commanding. He was in the service three years, and took part in the engagements of Winchester, Cedar Creek, Antietam, and many others of less importance. He was mustered out on June 15, 1865. During the conflict Mr. Clark was injured so that he could never afterward engage in manual labor. Soon after his return to Washington county he was married to Sarah Bell, daughter of John and Isabel Mounts, of South Strabane township, this county, and they have had five children, namely: Anna Belle (wife of Joseph Pense, of Washington county), Clara, Margaret, Maria, and one son that died in infancy. Politically, Mr. Clark is a Democrat. In addition to managing his farm he devotes much attention to stock raising.
